Yet another misunderstander. “Britain: Man Sentenced in Bomb Plot,” by John F. Burns for the New York Times, July 17 (thanks to all who sent this in):
A 20-year-old British man, Isa Ibrahim, was sentenced to a minimum of 10 years in prison on Friday for planning a suicide attack on a shopping center in Bristol. Prosecutors said Mr. Ibrahim, a private-school-educated physician’s son who converted to Islam after a period spent as a homeless drug addict, had assembled explosives, ball bearings, a detonator and a homemade suicide vest at his apartment. The police said they arrested Mr. Ibrahim after receiving a tip from the Muslim community in Bristol that he had boasted of his plans to achieve martyrdom through a suicide bombing.
That at least is good to see.
